    I get married in June and was told by first choice I would have to translate my documents But I was informed by previous brides that there was no need ! I've sent my documents to Maria and she has said at present they are fine ! I too have been divorce and I've changed my name !! I wanted the gazebo coz it so gorgeous and read the the beach can be a bit windy ! Was told I couldn't have it as it was booked ! I made it clear I was not happy so they managed to get me in but at a couple of hours early then my wedding was going to be but feel it is worth it. What are you doing for the evening reception ? I have booked the private poolside party but have not yet had this confirmed. X

      Hi, If you don't mind me asking is the poolside reception a lot? My fiance is keen on arranging something like that but the whole purpose for us to do our wedding away was to save money. We are only a group of 20 and I thought we could probably just find one of the bars/nightclubs we liked to go to afterwards and have drink on our all inclusive. We will actually probably see you as we get married on the 9th. We leave on the 16th but obviously you'll be there before. lol x

      Hi we are having a poolside reception but wanted to keep costs down as we are having a reception at home too, there are 21 adults and 4 children in our group and we are having the basic bar package and bringing our ipods and using the speakers/mic and eugenia has quoted us $720 for 3 hours

            I'm going to take a wild stab at it that the $720 includes the speakers/mic rental, the bar (because there will be a bartender there) so the money is more paying for the bartender's service just specifically for her party.. I think that's what I read somewhere else on this thread.

                  Hi guys,

                  We're getting married on March 23 at GBP Coba and have really been struggling with finding a place post dinner for the reception. I've heard lots about the poolside reception and it looks amazing in all the pictures but I'm worried with a group of approx 20 people it won't be the best spot, that is, it won't be lively enough. The groom's family isn't one for dancing and I kind of wanted to dance the night away!  :)

                  I see some brides decide to go to the lobby where there is a live band. What are the reception options? I was a little unsure as I haven't received much info from Maria, our WC.

                  Thanks for the help, ladies!

                     We have stayed at the Bahia in Mexico several times aswell as the hotel chain all over the world and we have always emailed in advance our a la carte reservations and they have been made without any hiccups.  Dont see why you would have any problems - fingers crossed it is done for you  x

                    Do you have to do this? We don't necessarily want to book it all in advance. I know that sometimes it can get packed but was hoping that we'd be able to make arrangements once we are there. I have a couple of dinners in mind that I'll book soon but not all of the a la cartes as I want to play some by ear.

                      We were unable to make any dinner reservations during our stay. When we tried the only availability we were offered was @ midnight. We spoke with our W/C and she was able to make us some reservations for around 10pm at a couple of restaurants. After going to a couple of restaurants around 10 i thought it was very strange that they would offer midnight reservations because all the restaurants seemed to be prepping for closing while we were dining.
